I haven’t done these in a while and got to thinking about past blogs of last year. Got to thinking of new people I’d met, befriended, of new businesses of great local charities. So without further ado,… lets have some fun with this.
The first OB Award goes to one of my favorite places for a Philly Cheese Steak,…. Montagu’s.
Best catfish award goes to Homeside in Petersville on Cloverdale Road.
My favorite restaurant of all time,… The Barge Inn. Miss you guys.
The best use of the color green goes to the Kudzu Queens. They continue to help raise money to fight cancer. Support their cause!
The best BBQ sandwich in the Shoals,….. Southern BBQ on Pine across from Montagu’s.
Best non profit organization,…. CASA of Lauderdale County.
Best local news site,… Quad Cities Daily. They have quickly become a good news source for the Shoals. Often times beating the TimesFaily to the punch.
Best drug stores,…. Avalon Discount Drugs in Muscle Shoals and Northgate Pharmacy in Petersville.
Best wings in town,… Got to give FloBama a shoutout here. Still I miss the Barge Inn,…
Best used vehicle lot in the Shoals,…. Thornton Motors on Florence Blvd,… they are new but not. With three generations of experience they will do well. ThorntonMotors check them out. A blog will be in the future.
Best pizza in town,… I still miss the Barge Inn.
The best bloggers in town,…. Anyone on my bloglist. I don’t hang out with losers.
Best events to attend,… this one is tough. Because there are so many. First Fridays in Florence, HandyFest, KellerFest, OktoberFest in St Florian are tops on my list.
Best local music venue,… this one is tough too. But The End on Pine St offers more than your typical country twang. FloBama has great local musicians as does Champys and Franks Italian in Sheffield.
Best local music store,… Pegasus Records,….. hands down.
Best Mexican Restaurant,…. None,… sad ain’t it?
Best steak in town,… my house,… I have perfected the process of grilling/smoking most anything with charcoal. Steaks are one of them. Nothing else can compare.
Best local painting company,… yep you guessed it. Chris’ Painting. We have literally painted everything from a commode seat to million dollar houses in the Shoals. Chris' Painting
Best local computer store,... ShoalsWEB,... Computers, repair, networking and more,.....
